Three things before I get into New Trier's offerings:
1) This thread is totally awesome, and I am going to tell Illinois hosts about it and link to it from the IHSSBCA homepage. I encourage other people to spread the word, especially if there are hosts you know who are new, who often use bad questions, or who haven't found a writer they get along with yet. I also hope that if this thread gets long (and I hope that it does get long) that somebody (possibly me) will organize it for the qbwiki so that it is easy for people to find what they want.
2) Keep in mind that if you are making an offer here, you are putting not only your own reputation on the line but also to some extent the reputation of this board as a useful place to get things done. Make every effort to abide by your promises and produce a high quality result. If at some point it looks like you will not be able to deliver on your promises, see #3.
3) Communication is very important. Nobody minds receiving an update on how the set is shaping up, and don't be annoyed if somebody contacts you a few weeks before a tournament asking how things are going. It is also important to let people know when they will receive the questions. Also, most people are used to NAQT IS questions, so be up front about it if your questions differ in some significant way from those in terms of format, distribution, or difficulty.
As to New Trier's offerings:
1) I am writing the Scobol Solo
again this year. To see what the questions are like, follow the link. The matches are 20 tossups long with no bonuses. There are 14 regular rounds, plus a round of replacements, plus a 60 question round for the Championship. There are three computational questions in each round. The questions are split up into 20 categories, and the same categories occur in the same order in every round. The questions are written for an individual competition, so the difficulty is a little easier than IS. It will be held 11/22 this year, so I would prefer mirrors on the same date. Additionally, I do not want a mirror in Illinois, since I like attracting the best students throughout Illinois. Students from outside Illinois are also very welcome, but I'm realistic.
2) We are hosting a tournament on December 20 for teams. The questions will use the Illinois distribution (4/4 Lit, 4/4 Math, 4/4 Science, 4/4 Social Studies, 2/2 Fine Arts, 1/1 Interdisciplinary, 1/1 Miscellaneous), but the bonuses will be in the format used more commonly outside of Illinois (ACF/NAQT). We are not yet sure exactly who is writing exactly what, but let us know if you are interested in working with us on the questions. If somebody is willing to write a significant amount, we could produce two separate sets--one in the Illinois distribution for our tournament and another with more history for your tournament.
As far as what we are looking for:
Depending on when U of I hosts the NAQT Qualifier, there is interest in a tournament for strong Illinois teams on either 1/31 or 2/14. (My guess is that U of I will use 2/14, leaving 1/31 as a good date.) It probably would be hosted by either New Trier or Rockford Auburn. We also would like to see a good Nationals Prep in late April or early May in addition to the Midwest Championship that Culver hosts (using a different date than Culver). It looks like Notre Dame, or some high school in the South Bend Area, is going to host a No Name Mirror on 11/15, and that's a good thing.
